    reading your poetry is a constant rejoicing...I guess, your burdens have put you somewhere with someone and something...

    We were born in the same year! and write poems for ourselves and others with whom we can share our feelings. I am glad you are on the way to get published soon after the completing of your manuscript. Your poems are fantastic and promising indeed. I have a friendly suggestion: don't write too much, better make your poems a bit solid in your supposed craftmanship that would certainly take you far away to the place where all your dreams will come true partially if not completely. I wish you success and want to be friends with you. You can read my poems here on the same site.

    I knew and appreciated your poems a while ago now, in this lovely Poetic Constellations family.

    I'm really glad to know I'll be able to read more from you here. You're a great poet, whose pen brushes life, feelings with the colors of life and it's beautiful.

    I left a comment on the first poem you posted 'between two griefs' It is an extraordinary effort by an extraordinary woman.

Best Poem of Amberlee Carter

...Changing The Color To Sunrise

(you know who you are)

pages of poetry scatter
absent of direction 'cross the floor,
tiptoe through the abstract path,
cool cement and disturbed titles-
meditating and focused hard
on every endeavor of ball and heal
careful not to summon the demons
between the lines- I am haunted by words,
scared mindless into repetitions,
basic survival methods-
not too lean on the meaning,
not too thick on the flow,
equally structuring the verses to burn.

my eyes seep petals of ink.
you have never seen the rib
torn from my cage, ...

Read the full of ...Changing The Color To Sunrise


I imagined
rain casting bows
cross your sleep struck neck,
you tossed and sighed
heavy skin to bitter winter-
Your shoulders slender and spent,
you held up the world
and it gave you exhaustion.
